Saunders Secondary School is a public high school in London, Ontario. Teams from the school were very successful in Reach for the Top in the 1990s.

The 1992 and 1996 teams won the Reach national championships, making it the second school, at the time, to win twice. Despite the frequently strong competition in Ontario, the team also made it to nationals in 1994 and 1995, missing out in 1993 only by finishing third in Ontario. David Thorsley was on the team for all five of those years, making him the first player to win twice (since matched by multiple players on the 2002 and 2003 UTS teams) and first player to attend Nationals four times.

Since the dominant years, Saunders has made frequent appearances at Ontario provincials, but has not been a significant contender for the title. After Thorsley graduated, the team, led by Bill White, won the London city championship in 1998 and 1999.
